Florida Power & Light Co. bought land in Nassau County comparable in size to its Horizon Solar Energy Center in Alachua and Putnam counties.

Florida Power & Light Co. (FPL) bought 1,311 acres in Nassau County for $13.1 million but has no specific plan for the property.

The land comprises most of an 1,814-acre property called Crawford Diamond Industrial Park.

Juno Beach-based FPL bought  most of the industrial park from Yulee-based Rayonier Inc. for $10,000 an acre.

FPL spokesman Stephen Heiman told the Jacksonville Daily Record that FPL has no specific plan for the land in Nassau County, located just north of Jacksonville. He said and that the utility company routinely acquires land that could advance its mission to serve customers.

The land in Nassau County is almost identical in size to the site of FPL’s Horizon Solar Energy Center in Putnam and Alachua counties, which spans about 1,310 acres.

But Nassau County is excluded from a list of 12 counties statewide that FPL has identified as potential sites for future power plants.

The Crawford Diamond Industrial Park, where FPL is now the primary land owner, has been approved for up to 10.5 million square feet of uses that could include manufacturing, assembly, warehousing and distribution. [Jacksonville Daily Record] Mike Seemuth
